Time-critical logistics business time:matters has collaborated with express firm CB Logistik to add a new flight and logistics operation between Germany and Spain.
A chartered freight service, utilising a SAAB 340 SF aircraft, will fly on weekdays from Baden-Baden (departing at 8:00pm) to Madrid (arriving at 11:30pm).
The service, dubbed In-Night Express, will enable parts to be distributed via CB Logistik’s network to reach Spanish and Portuguese customers by noon the same day. The Balearic and Canary Islands can also be served from Madrid on the same day.
Time-critical shipments of spare parts are particularly useful to those working in the mechanical engineering, agricultural, industrial trucks and medical technology sectors.
Marc Jobelius, member of the management board of CB Logistik, commented: “Through the cooperation with time:matters, we are pleased to be able to offer our customers a creative and high-performance transport solution for maintaining their supply chains, so that the goods can be picked up late as usual and still be available early in the morning of the following day.”
Stephan Vogel, managing director of time:matters Spare Parts Logistics, added: “By using the new freight flight route, our customers benefit from guaranteed shipping and extremely short handling times both in Baden-Baden and Madrid, and thus maximum flexibility.”
The partners said that for many customers, the stability of their supply chains is of immense importance due to massive restrictions in air and cross-border road transport.
“The timely delivery of required spare parts to dealers and service technicians, for example at the beginning of the harvest season, can continued to be planned by time:matters and CB Logistik. Thus, the parts arrive at the right time where they are needed,” time:matters added.
